    Jive V1 Connector Configuration Reference

    Table of Contents

    Retrieve content from a Jive instance.

    V1 deprecation and removal notice

    Starting in Fusion 5.12.0, all V1 connectors are deprecated. This means they are no longer being actively developed and will be removed in Fusion 5.13.0.

    The replacement for this connector is in active development at this time and will be released at a future date.

    If you are using this connector, you must migrate to the replacement connector or a supported alternative before upgrading to Fusion 5.13.0. We recommend migrating to the replacement connector as soon as possible to avoid any disruption to your workflows.

    If security trimming is enabled, the Jive connector uses the visibility field while indexing permission metadata on content. This data is stored in the acl_ss field for each document.

    The value of the visibility field determines the permissions assigned to a document. The following table describes how the types of permissions found in the visibility field of a document are used.

    Permission type Notes

    The value stored in the acl_ss field is "all".


    The document includes a list of users who are authorized to view the content. This list is stored in the acl_ss field as user email addresses.


    A request is made to determine the type of group. The group type determines the permissions stored.

    Open or Members Only

    The value stored in the acl_ss field is "all".

    Private or Secret

    The value stored in the acl_ss field is the name of the group.


    When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.
